Kaj?s final words:This band started out as a solo project from Ryan Dunson before changing their name to Rookie of the year with their debut release out in 2005,3 of the songs from that album has been re-recorded along with 9 brand new tracks for the new record "The goodnight moon" which was produced by Ed Rose (Emery,Brandtson).
ROTY plays a softer kinda indie rock with emo influences,they wrap up their acoustic based music with nice harmony vocals and well arranged songs - the pop pearl of "The blue roses" is just delicate and brings my thoughts to a mix between Armor for sleep and Relient K.
The punk pop tendencies are never far away in ROTY?s music but it?s more relaxing compared to the trendy party/college punk we?re used to hear.
I like this!
